Listen to a Girl from England

In this section of our website visitors can listen to real spoken English. On this page one can listen to a five year old girl and native speaker of English from the south-west of England reading the poem 'At the Zoo' by William Makepeace Thackeray.

First I saw the white bear, then I saw the black;

Then I saw the camel with a hump upon his back;

Then I saw the grey wolf, with mutton in his maw;

Then I saw the wombat waddle in the straw;

Then I saw the elephant a-waving of his trunk;

Then I saw the monkeys-mercy, how unpleasantly they-smelt!
